AMD FX-8350 Cracks 7.443 GHz

AMD's next-generation FX series processors may be just around the corner, but OC feats around its flagship model, the FX-8350, are already beginning to take shape. Chinese overclocker Ma Yuchuan (马宇川) achieved 7.443 GHz with the FX-8350, except with just one of its four modules enabled (two cores). The clock speed of 7443 MHz was set with a base clock of 244.3 MHz, and multiplier of 30.5X. A core voltage of 1.968V was used, and the chip was cooled with liquid nitrogen. 8 GB of dual-channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory by Patriot was used, and seating it all was Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard. Find the CPUID validation here. The feat still trails Andre Yang's 8.71 GHz on FX-8150. That's not to say that the FX-8350 isn't as good a chip with overclocking, not enough enthusiasts have their hands on it, yet.

Ya the troll below probably would praise Intel on such a high overclock, probably did it with the 65nm P4 Cedarmill model at the time too. I dont need to say anything more as everyone quoted above has said it for me.



go troll elsewhere
I came around I am sure the other trolls will as well. I am seeing some really nice stuff from AMD.

Meh, I would actually care if he could break 5GHz as a reliable every day OC, but given the stupid heat issues AMD chips have these days I doubt that's possible.
He ran the entire benchmark suite at 5ghz...That in itself is reasonably stable. It is also only 800mhz over the turbo core. I wouldn't doubt 5.5ghz on good watercooling. I also don't know what heat issues you are having the only company that I know of right now that has heat issues is the newer series of Intel chips which produce quite a lot of heat compared to the previous generation.

dave also got 5ghz on his chip

Good see some life over at the GreenTeam again! The last few weeks have been quite promising for AMD cPu's IMO.
